Djed Spence transfer will prove if Daniel Levy backs Tottenham boss Antonio Conte, claims ex-Spurs star Andros Townsend

Andros Townsend believes Djed Spence’s proposed transfer to Tottenham is ‘key’ to proving whether Daniel Levy is truly a changed man and supporting Antonio Conte.

The ex-Spurs star believes that if Spence were to move to the North London club soon it would prove Conte has Levy’s full backing in the transfer market.

Spence is a key target for Conte at Spurs

Spurs have previously let their transfer business meander until the end of the window as they hunt for bargain deals, but have moved fast so far this summer bringing in three new faces.

Goalkeeper Fraser Forster came from Southampton and winger Ivan Perisic joined Spurs from Inter Milan.

The club have also acquired the services of Mali midfielder from Brighton Yves Bissouma for £30m.

Tottenham aren’t stopping there and remain keen to sign Spence, who enjoyed a stellar campaign for Nottingham Forest last season as they were promoted to the Premier League.

But Townsend insists a failure to bring in the winger to have a full pre-season with Conte could be telling.

“Djed Spence is key,” he told talkSPORT.

“In the past, it would be the transfer fee that Daniel Levy dragged around until deadline day.

“I think it’s been reported that Spurs are nowhere near Middlesbrough’s valuation, so that’s the one if he really wants to back Conte.

“If he’s really changed and that’s happening in the next few weeks, then give Conte his man for the whole pre-season.”
